cupcake du jour

Cupcakes are the latest rage. They've gone gourmet and I have to admit, there are some beautiful cupcakes out there.

I've always liked cupcakes. A little bit of moist cake and a lot of icing. Now, that's my idea of a treat. And am I the only one that has fond memories of birthday cupcakes taken to school? Yep, I love me some cupcakes.

So I was pleasantly surprised to find out the Cold Stone Creamery now has their own version of the cupcake.

There's a chocolate shell filled with a little bit of cake with a little bit of ice cream and topped with whip cream and sprinkles. They are pre-made so you can't pick the type of cake nor flavor of ice cream, but all the combinations are good. Mine here was a red velvet cake with cake batter ice cream. Yummy!

You can buy a single Cold Stone cupcake for $2, or 6 for $10. It's the perfect little treat.
